Customer Reviews

Excellent book with a lot of general information, and choice specific information.
David S. Goodman
It's simply a good reference book to help people get the best from their car, and from themselves when driving it.

Excellent book with a lot of general information, and choice specific information. The book was obviously written for the average MR2 owner wanting to increase the performance of their MR2, while also learning a lot of new information (I never knew 93 turbo hardtop MR2s were so rare, nor that the best way to differentiate early 4A-GEs is not by the color of the lettering on the valve color, but by the number of ribs on the block.) While the book does focus on the MkII, there is more than enough general MR2 information to make this a worthwhile purchase for anyone interested in MR2s--or sports cars in general--whether you own one or not.

If you are looking for information about early MR2s, related details about turbo charging and autocrossing, you may find exactly what you want in this book. However, if you want serious information about the later MR2 Spyder there is far less information and fewer pages are devoted to it.

Page 116: "When swapping a new engine into the MR2 Spyder, most folks reach for the 2ZZ-GE from the Celica GT-S, the powerplant many owners felt should've been in the car all along." So, details on this engine swap could have been extremely useful. Instead, there is an article on swapping a Honda engine into an MR2 Spyder, lacking details.

Nice book, almost what I wanted.

The book is absolutely wonderful from an informative standpoint. I am happy to add it to my collection of MR2 things I have been collecting since 1990 when I bought my 91 New.

Extremely valuable book. Full of great advice and unbiased facts to help you decide how and how much to modify your MR2. I especially liked the cost vs gain info and tradeoffs to expect when doing the mods.

This book has been great for me as a second generation MR2 owner. The book definitely has a focus on the second generation but there is some great information for the other generations as well. In addition to talking about modifications there is some interesting information about the backgrounds of each car. I would highly recommend this book to any MR2 owner interested in modifying, or currently modifying, their MR2.

Emphasis was made on the Gen II Turbo models, but there's plenty of information for all generations of the MR2.
